    I can't wait to see the full conversation. I enjoy Sam Jones' show. I love the conversation shows without a live audience.

    I didn't know the show was on Netflix.

    Sam is a great listener, he just lets the guests talk about whatever they want.

    Cute story:

    And another great picture from Sam:

    Silverman & Kimmel

    Funny how Matt's name came up! Some things are so good they just never get old.


    And saw a completely random report that Matt's LA house is for sale?

    Where? Twitter?

    It makes sense: if he wrapped the movie, they will be in NY full time.

    Event Planner Bryan Rafanelli

    You’ve also worked on vow renewals, how do those differ from weddings?
    We did Matt and Luci Damon’s, quote, unquote, renewal, but they never had a wedding. So, it's a little bit different. I mean, quite honestly, at the end of the day, they did that for their girls. They have four children, they're all girls, and I don't want to stereotype little girls, but it's like “Mommy, what did your wedding look like?” And they got married at city hall. So, ten years later, Matt's like, "OK, let's have a wedding.” They did a beautiful white party, and all the guests were in white. And the difference, of course, is when you do a renewal and you have four kids, they walked down the aisle [too].

    Aww. No photos have ever been leaked by guests (there were long-lens paparazzi photos).

    Off Camera

    Not sure if anyone saw the show - it was apparently on Direct TV. A longer preview is online:


    As our first two-time guest, Matt joins Off Camera to talk about his acting mid-life crisis, the gamble that almost cost Matt and Ben Good Will Hunting, the invaluable wisdom he’s gained from directors, and why the Boston Red Sox and specifically Fenway Park carry so much significance for him.

    RE: Off Camera

    Abigail and I posted above. The interview was excellent, very thoughtful. He's obviously still dealing with grief.

    New York

    This girl lives in NY so, according to her tweet, Matt's there as well:

    Yes, he is:

    Frank Marshall


    Damon credits Marshall with saving the day on “The Bourne Identity.” “Frank was a replacement, because our producer had a family emergency,” he says of the fraught production. “There was a big rewrite, so there was this whole process of trying to get a lot of what Tony Gilroy had written back into it, including the big third-act piece on this farm. When the movie was testing at a 75 and was a year delayed in coming out, I’m sure the studio just wanted to release the thing.

    “Frank laid out this surgical plan for what he wanted to do and got us $3 million for a reshoot, telling [then Universal chairman] Stacey Snider, ‘I can’t say this is going to make you more money, but I guarantee you it will make the movie better.’ Had it not been for Frank, we never would have had a franchise. It would have been just one and done. Instead, it became a 15-year project for all of us,” he says.

    “Frank has this incredible story of how he became the producer of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ Damon says by way of explanation. “Spielberg visited the set of this Peter Bogdanovich movie he was doing, and it was Frank’s custom not to sit for lunch because there was just too much to do, so he’d grab a plate of spaghetti and run from table to table and check in with people. Spielberg got introduced to Frank in a hurry, Frank shook his hand, then ignored him and started rattling questions at Peter about what they needed to shoot.

    “When Spielberg started to talk about ‘Raiders,’ he said to George Lucas, ‘We need a guy like Frank Marshall to produce it,’ and George says, ‘Who the hell is Frank Marshall?’ And he says, ‘I don’t know, but I watched that guy and he doesn’t even sit down to eat. He doesn’t stop.’”

    Out in LA

    Matt was at dinner with Christian Bale and his wife last night. Weibo and Legionmedia have the pics.

    Catroina Balfe seems to confirm Ford v Ferrari has wrapped:

    In addition to Outlander, you have a movie coming to theatres with Christian Bale and Matt Damon.
    That’s going to be out in June, and we just finished filming about a week and a half ago. It’s really cool. It’s about the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari in the 60s at the Le Mans race. I play the character named Mollie Miles, and Christian Bale plays Ken Miles, who is this incredible race car driver who effectively won Le Mans in 1966. It’s this really fun and beautiful story, not just about car racing, but it’s about friendship, family, and I’m very excited for people to see it.

    RE: Balfe


    Everything I read about this movie, makes me want to watch it so bad.
    I can't wait for the first trailer.
